Noticed on some of the pictures. The flags were at half staff. Do they always fly them that way at the Alamo?

The only one I can think of recently who passed away was John Paul Stevens. The ex-supreme court justice. They do this "half staff" thing too often. It's not a rare thing like it once was. It really should be for very special occasions.

I just forwarded some of this info to my brother, the Aggie. A+M did restore the cannon didn't they?

Tomorrow I'll see if my niece can forward this short video to my brother the Aggie. He'd appreciate it.For those not from around here , Aggie is slang for someone who attends or has attended Texas A+M University. I think I read in this thread that A+M helped restore this cannon. Plus I can't send pictures or videos on this tablet. I'm ignorant of A lot of "tech" stuff. Pictures and videos are done on the smart phone. And this tablet sends pictures sideways for some reason.

Glad y'all have enjoyed this. I certainly have. Now it's time to order something from Michael for yourself. :D
Sorry, I don't own a cannon that needs "fixen" but if I did I'd call on Michael. He's probably already well known in certain circles and I'm sure this Alamo Project made him even better known. It was a job well done. Thank You , this Texan appreciates any improvements done to or for the Alamo. Once again Thank You.!
